My advice is to take a decent webbing climbing sling or two and find a place on the top of tubes about 750mm infront of where you sit and loop it though to hold onto , your passenger will want one too and they are also useful to pull yourself or someone else back into the boat should you fall out , or go for a swim . Holding the ropes on the tubes will soon have your hands raw and knuckles chafed on the tubes .

make an elastic loop from 6mm bungee cord that fits snug around your wrist and conect the kill cord to that , Kill cord for tiller steer is better on your throttle hand than leg , When you get out drop the loop over the tiller so the kill cord doesn't get lost or pulled off and it will be there to remind you when you next grab the tiller .

take some rope to tie your kit bag in the bow as it will bounce back constantly when underway , and get all your kit in a decent bag to keep it in place .
Great idea i t

I'd be interested to know if you found somewhere useful.
These seem to be reasonable for online flares Marine Safety Equipment

I use a weighted rope for the anchor instead of chain, saves dragging chain over the tubes, works well enough for us as we don't go ribbing in heavy seas, never seen much fun in getting battered n bruised I've just made an extension with carbine clips so we can extend the rope if needed, seems to do the job up to now

Liros Leaded Rope Anchor Line - 30m x 10mm - Only 89.95 - Force 4 Chandlery

No problems

In my world all conventional wisdow and experience has it that chain added to the end of an anchor reduces the force on the anchor shank by decreasing the angle of pull between the rode and the sea bed thus maximizing the anchor's holding power . It also has the added advance of reducing chafing on the sea bed.

There is therefore no reason to throw out this wisdow "just" because you are talking about a SIB.

This is the anchor/rode/storage bag that I have been using in my Hondwave 3.8 airdeck for the last 5 years with no damage
